I want to be a mobile application developer

So Bunlong, sophomore in information communication technology (ICT) at Cambodian Mekong University, wants to become a mobile application developer after his graduation.

“Now almost everyone has a smartphone, and the popularity of computers will decrease,” Bunlong says. This means that the need for mobile apps will increase quickly, he added.

Amid the increasing need for mobile apps, Bunlong sees that the numbers of Cambodian mobile app developers are no match for the huge demand.

The 19-year-old ICT student from Banteay Meanchey province always seeks chances to join technology programs to improve his understanding of mobile applications.

BarCamp is one of the most useful programs for him. He says, “In BarCamp I met a lot of skilled people from various fields of technology including mobile applications. I draw a lot of inspiration from these get-togethers.”

But despite inspiration, Bunlong needs concrete guidance to make his wish of becoming a successful mobile app developer come true.
